The perimeter is comprised of eight hinged panels and four straight panels. Once assembled, the perimeter creates an 11 feet 9 inch by 11 feet 9 inch square enclosure. The hinged corners and quick release pins make for easy assembly, requiring no tools. Side panels include a built-in wire way for easy cable management.
An adjustable Perimeter Strap (am-2270a) placed under this playing surface help keep the walls square during game play.
The fastening method for fixing the polycarbonate sheets to the aluminum rails has changed. The previous mechanical press fit has been removed, and rivets now hold the polycarbonate sheet in place. Each Panel (am-2160b) is now comprised of two toothless aluminum extrusion rails (am-2556a), one sheet of 3mm polycarbonate (am-2582a), and six rivets (am-1226).
We have made this change to make the panels more consistent, as well as to allow for our customers to replace pieces of a panel as needed.
Corner Assemblies consist of two panels attached with hinges. Individual Panels and corner assemblies are available as Panels am-2160b and am-2600b respectively. If you wish to build a custom size arena for non tournament use, combine any number of corner assemblies or panels using two Field Links (am-2580a) and four Quick Release Pins per intersection.
FIRST Tech Challenge tournaments are conducted inside this perimeter kit with Soft Tiles making up the floor. These are not included with the perimeter kit, but are available as a Full Field Set of Soft Tiles (am-2499-36) or as individual Soft Tiles (am-2499).
